Anime Blog 101: Myself;Yourself;_Yourself

For those of you who haven't noticed (and since we're only in the "M"s on my list I'm not surprised if you haven't) I watch a lot of anime based on video games. This is because when I was in high school I decided that I was going to watch anime based on video games and there was a whole list of them; thus tons of video game-based anime on my watched list XD

Myself;Yourself is a 13 episode shonen anime. I'm not going to lie. I watched this anime because the cover of the game has a pretty girl playing a violin...

So the story follows Sana who moves back to his hometown after a number of years to find that some things have stayed the same and some have changed. There's a lot of depressing backstory that just makes me too sad to type it out so read the wiki or watch it to find out!

This is basically one of those games where you play a male character and you have tons of female love interests...thus there are 2 main guys in this anime and like 6 girls. The main story of the anime follows Sana as he remembers his depressing backstory and learns why one of his friends (Nanaka) is no longer how he remembers her. She no longer plays the violin, she's moody, and just not the happy girl he remembers her being. So we learn her depressing backstory. All-in-all I really just remember being sad a lot when I was watching this. But I can tell you that it has a happy ending so in my mind, that totally makes up for all the sadness :D


Nanaka and Sana

pros and cons:

  • Violin playing character
  • Happy ending
  • Good art
  • Short :D
  • Such a depressing story...
I love this song BTW:

That's all for now! Thanks for reading! Until next time,

Anime Blog 100: My Bride is a Mermaid

Wow! I can't believe we've made it all the way to number 100!! Woot! Woot!

This week's blog is about My Bride is a Mermaid. A 26 episode shonen with 2 OVAs.

The story follows Nagasumi (played by Todd Haberkorn) who's pretty much a "normal" guy. He almost drowns but is saved by a mermaid named Sun but apparently there's some mermaid law that says now one of them must die since this human dude has seen this mermaid...solution? LET'S GET MARRIED! Which is where all the fun and drama begins since Sun's dad is the leader of a Mermaid Yakuza...turns out there are a number of those...

It's a really cute show and I really enjoyed it a lot. Especially the episode with the Song of Sleep. I laughed so hard for so long because of that song! :D Also...Masa. That's how awesome that guy is. He doesn't even need an explanation! Oh...also...Lunar's dad freaks me out. No Joke.

So, art!

Nagasumi and Sun

Now time for pros and cons:

  • Mermaids
  • Cute show
  • Comedy
  • Pretty art
  • Ah, Yakuza
  • Masa
  • Lunar's dad
  • Lunar's dad
  • Lunar's dad
  • Ok...Imma stop now...
So there you have it! Thanks for reading! Until next time,
